It’s been a while since Christoph Maser joined Team Icinga sharing his knowledge about creating RPMs. Those packages can be found in RPMForge :-)

There were a lot of questions about getting Debian packages for Icinga and finally, we are happy to welcome Alexander Wirt onto Team Icinga!

He is Debian packager for Nagios and now Icinga and did a really great job to bring fresh Icinga Debian packages to the upstream.

Currently, Debian lenny, sid/squeeze and Ubuntu Karmic are supported. They can be found here – please check it out and tell us about it!

Take a look at README.Debian after installing IDOUtils and make sure to enable the Event Broker Module in icinga.cfg – patching configs during package install is against packaging policy. But again, we are already working on a satisfying solution for that – check #162.

Icinga’s journey is not ending – are you working on BSD ports or any other applicable operating systems repository? Then please contact us and we will make sure to enlighten the path together for Icinga :-)

Update 2010-04-09: Icinga got accepted in Debian sidhttp://packages.debian.org/sid/icinga – fire up apt and enjoy =)
